the court. if president obama is there, we may see her retire. you may see scalia or kennedy retire if we have a president romney. it makes a huge shift in the court based on the next president. you could have one, too, or even three. that would give president obama the ability to appoint the majority of the members on the supreme court or it would give president romney the chance to possibly shift the balance and any when replacing justice kennedy certainly affects the balance and makes it either a solidly liberal or solid conservative record assuming the president knows how to pick the right kind of person the want, which is always a challenge. >> you said retirement's during this term? my prediction would be none. >> in four years, i think they can sit there and think about so and so can replace me. for years is a long time. >> speaking of having fun, which you join me on behalf of the federalist society in thinking our panelists?

done. that's one of the attacks. in the next commercial break you have an ad that says barack obama was never a nice guy. he's a radical socialist, clean energy lunatic who's trying to take your job. and the result is, more money actually didn't feed into a larger narrative in a way that i think the romney campaign would have preferred. the second thing that the super pac money is less effective now is that under fec rules, or fcc rules, super pacs campaigns are able to get the lowest available rates for the advertising on television advertising right now, right before an election. super pacs are not able to do that. super pacs in the same market are spending far more, sometimes twice or three times as much in the campaign is to get the same money. the third reason i think that you are seeing super pacs been less effective now than they were early on is that in just the last month or two, obama because we're getting close to the election, paying more attention to it because we have the conventions, are waking up and giving more money in small dollars in that we don't really sleep happen
